Are there any people besides the few on the VIBE forum, who are ranting and raving with parents, who are childless or childfree and PROUD of it that live in town? My wife and I would love to meet some new friends who want to go out and have a good time, see movies, play mini golf, etc, but who do NOT have or WANT kids.

Please tell me there are some of you around, married or single. We are wanting to start up a chapter of NO KIDDING in G-burg and wonder if there would be interest.

No we are NOT THE ASSHOLES WHO BASHED THE PARENTS ON THE VIBE SITE, so parents, do not come over here and bad mouth us. We have nothing to say to you, and do not want you bashing this forum. You want to gripe, continue to complain the jack ass at VIBE because he is not welcome here.

You people are either clueless or egocentric. First of all, they are child-free because they choose to be. Whether you like it or not, this is still a free country and if someone doesn't want kids, that is their right. It doesn't mean they are "kid haters". Secondly, their is nothing wrong with wanting friends that have the same interests (or dis-interests) as yourself. Most people do. And thirdly, they were nice to you, explaining that they were not the ones bashing parents in the Vibe thread. All they asked in return is for parents not to bash them because of their child-free choice. You people can't even do that. What kind of example is that for your kids? If someone is different than you, it's ok to put them down, call them names and force your opinion on them? Their are son many parents jumping on the anti-bullying campaign but they don't realize that the kids are learning that behavior from the adults (parents included). Let Chris & Rena find child-free friends and leave them alone. They are not hrting anyone.

First of all, just because they are child-free does not mean they are "kid haters". It just means they don't want kids. Secondly, whether you like it or not, this is a free country. If they choose not to have kids, that is their right. Thirdly, their is nothing wrong with wanting to have friends with similar interests (or dis-interests). Most people do. And finally, most parents are jumping on the anti-bullying campaign in the schools, but what they don't realize is that the kids are learning this behavior from the adults (parents included). What kind of example are you setting by posting these comments? If someone doesn't agree with your views it's ok to say mean things to them, call them names and try to force your beliefs on them? Chris & Rena were trying to be nice to you parents. They explained that they were not the ones bashing you in the Vibe thread and all they asked was that same courtesy be returned to them. You can't even do that. Just let them try to find friends with similar interests and leave them alone. They are not hurting you.

Leave them alone you bitter parent. If their parents had not had them, then you would be on here typing and talking to yourself, so you would look even more stupid then you do in this post.

Those of us who are child-free are some of the most UNselfish people alive. We have plenty of love, want to share it with the world, just not with children.

It is so unbelievable how hateful parents are. Just makes us wonder how unhappy being a parent you must be to lash out at us so hatefully.

And you all got SOOOOOOOOOO angry at the childless man on the other forum for being SOOOOOOOOOO mean, yet you are just as bad here.

I'm very happy being a parent...but I don't look down on ones who don't want kids that's their choice and its not for some people. To each their own and they probably want people to hang out with they can relate to.... like for example I can't relate to people without kids I don't have as much fun because our lives r so different and that's probably how they feel they were nit being rude by any means so come on let hem find some friends and leave them alone

I hate children. I hate them being in stores, restaurants, hate them being ALLOWED in public at all. I wish you damn breeders would keep them in line instead of acting like the world revolves around the turds you ejaculated or shat out of your crotch...

I don't have kids but that doesn't mean I dont like them! I find them very enjoyable when they're baked at 375 for about 2 hrs, it make them crispy on the outside!

Wow. There is a huge lack of critical thinking on the part of several commenters here.

First, to "yes sir", often, those who have chosen to forego children do not want to hang out with parents, even if the parents found a sitter, because, as Ashley points out, they simply want to be with people they relate to. Most of us socialize ALL THE TIME with parents. So what is lacking in our lives is hanging out with people who have actively decided not to have kids. It is still relatively rare to find those people and it can be lonely to feel like the black sheep every single day because everyone else wants (or has) children. It is NOT because they want to "get drunk" or "troll for swingers".(Genius)

Second, the comment about how we were all once children has nothing to do with not wanting to have children ourselves. Of course we were all once children. You've just stated a scientific fact. Now use the brain that worked so hard to come up with that and think about what it is about the fact that we were once children that obligates us to reproduce. Or that obligates us to hang out with other adults who have children.(Answer: there is no such obligation).

Finally, until you understand what it is like to be an adult who has chosen not to have children, and to deal with the grammatically challenged, super angry parents who cannot think critically, who take it personally that we have chosen something different from others have chosen, you have no business spewing your judgment at anyone. Not everyone must make the same choice you made.

Plenty of us have decided to build a life without our own children and we have not made that choice with the hatred and judgments that many of you have to rely on to comment on websites like this.

Take a grammar class, a critical thinking class, and get some perspective, and then maybe we can talk.

Hey I'm all for free choice of you don't want kids that's awesome and as part of a free country you have that right. I made a statement based on things you normally can't do when you have kids. You see parents can do anything that those who choose not to have kids can do. Maybe state in the original post a little more clearly what was being sought. Maybe don't hang out with judgmental people who look down on you for not having kids. I for one look down on no one for their choice to have kids or not. Have a good day I apologize for making a generalized statement on this subject, I just wondered what people without kids could do that parents couldn't and the number 1 thing is hardcore partying.

When much of life has passed and those who purposely chose not to have kids or to adopt will reflect upon themselves, what will they say is real and meaningful to them? What will they have?

Not having children doesn't mean you hate them. But making a woman pregnant just isn't a nice thing to do to her!
